They CAN.. They did!

I originally stumble this video from one my multiply contacts..

This is the text on her post:
A son asked his father, 'Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?' The father who, despite having a heart condition, says 'Yes'. So one day, the son asked his father again, 'Dad, let's join the Ironman together.'
To which, his father said 'Yes' .

For those who didn't know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast of the Big Island of Hawaii .
Father and son went on to complete the race together

I can't hear it but I was moved by their story..


  1. Thank You for sharing the Hoyts' story. There is no greater love than that of a father for his son.
    Dick Hoyt is the embodiment of that love. lupus73

  2. let me just use the word "amazing" although it does not measure to this. I hope this doesn't put some tears on the eyes of those who lack this type of relationship with their father. Life is good and can always be better if we want it to be.


  3. life is like a race . . . UNCONDITIONAL LOVE is the key to reach the finish line . . He is truly a GREAT DAD!

    ...i wish???? (alam mo nayun???!!!)
